We have been wanting to go to Bubba's BBQ whenever visiting family in Avon Lake but it has always been packed. Finally found it relatively empty Sunday afternoon. It was worth the wait. From the time we walked in the door and looked at the...More

Ribs were disgustingly tough and fatty. I had a hard time getting the slab apart to even try to eat them. Fries were cold. Service was inexcusable. Shame on you! I’d give a “zero” if I could. We will not be back.

So Bubba is a great guy, famous football player and all. He took his ribs national with a successful Shark Tank appearance. I prefer bone in ribs, they are the "real deal" however most everyone enjoys the cleanliness of the boneless. The problem is everything...More

Former NFL star Al Bubba Baker, started his own BBQ joint. It is excellent!!! The ribs fall off the bone and are so tasty the sides are good southern comfort food. I recommend St Louis Style!

Boneless ribs were excellent and pulled chicken was wonderful! Service was friendly and fast. Will definitely be coming back.

We had the sampler for two. All meats were dry. Baked beans must have come out of a can. French fries were limp and cool. Two good things; the service and barbeque sauce. Will not go back.

Great BBQ. Got the Q 4 for 2. We couldn’t have been more surprised. Pulled pork,beef brisket, St. Louis ribs, boneless ribs and chicken. All tender and delicious. Love they don’t put the sauce on it. Had the coleslaw, green beans, fries and cornbread muffin....More

We have heard people rave about this restaurant, however, our experience from more then one visit is that both the food and service are inconsistent. Have met the owner and you could not ask for a better person. Unfortunately, he is not always there and...More
